Undeserving Lost

There are two losses in two weeks.

The first, I utterly convinced it was undeserving lost by Belgium and got knocked-out from the World Cup after got beaten by Argentina. For the record, I should say, Argentina never gave a real threat to Belgium throughout the game except the Higuain’s strike hitting the bar post.

However, that’s the game. That’s football. They put you in for full 90-minutes before turning back the ridiculous outcome. Since it does so, me right now hoping the Dutch doing it well and reaching their hand on the glorious cup next week.

Hell yeah, beat the crap out of Brazil!

The second lost, as it was supposedly entitled as undeserving, too, is the loss of humanity. It happened here in Malaysia. It happened here right at the moment the blissful Ramadan started.

It happened here when an arrogant, privileged politician chooses to spark the war against homeless and marginalised.

It was a lost to humanity. As well as we knew the Ramadan promised everything about the remembrance of unfortunate and forgotten, we choose to put that aside and roaring the arrogances. We are nothing but a bastard retarded of arrogant privileged.

I wrote this promptly, as a soft reminder to readers, and myself on how of us as a human being, create by GOD to love each other and to spread the love. To have a compassionate. To be tender and to give to others.

The answer for this second undeserving lost is humanity. To nurture humanity, Ramadan supposedly got you everything to think about. To lose the humanity that was instilled within us by GOD is undeserving lost.

To lose, that means to lose the life. To lose the life, means you are not deserving to breathe in this world.

The homeless, the marginalised, the forgotten, the voiceless – they are ours. They are part of us. We are we.

Pengajaran Dari Sebuah Komik

Sejak kecil lagi, saya telah didedahkan dengan berbagai jenis komik bacaan ringan seperti Doraemon , Dewata Raya, Utopia, Naruto dan sebagainya. Namun ternyata saya lebih berminat untuk “mendalami” komik-komik Kung Fu karya penulis China seperti Tony Wong melalui karyanya Jejak Wira. Seperti biasa, kepulangan saya kali ini ke kampung halaman dalam misi menghabiskan beberapa buah Jejak Wira yang dibeli oleh abang semasa ketiadaan saya di rumah.

Ternyata plot ceritanya meskipun panjang dan tak pasti bila penghabisannya namun ia tetap tidak membosankan. Menjadi semakin menarik dan sukar bilamana ia melibatkan pergolakan politik dunia yang terang-terang menyebelahi siapa yang kuat dia yang menang.

Setelah “menelaah” kesemua komik muktabar ini saya seakan terpanggil untuk mengulas karya Tony Wong iaitu Jejak Wira yang mana saya kira ianya amat dekat dengan apa yang berlaku kini di dunia realiti.


Bagaimana para penguasa negara sanggup membutakan hati dan mata demi kepentingan nafsu mereka…

Homosexuals and The Idea of Abnormality

Once ago, my friend and me have a little chat about stuff—if not mistaken, we gossiping a hot Math teacher from Italy, and from where it began, we start talking about gay and LGBT.

The pinnacle of it was when my friend proudly declares the gay people is abnormal.

I just sit still, silent and stunned.

I should start somewhere. Here it is, for myself, to be abnormal is to be true to oneself. And it is a kind of freedom that I longingly seek and understand, that is to be true to yourself, to who you are.

It is a freedom to be able to against the flow. It is a freedom when we do not favor the external to validate ourselves. To do this, first, we have to be abnormal, in the eye of the many.

Anyway, I don’t mean to philosophize anything here. It is just a version of abnormality that I always think and perceived before, and luckily (no pun intended), that day comes when my friend bluntly declare homosexuality is abnormal.

And, I have to revisit my thought on abnormality.

I am OK with her…

Laila dan Majnun

Telah sampai cherita bahwa pada suatu hari Sultan Mahmud Ghaznawi menitahkan pesuruh2nya supaya membawa Laila menghadapnya agar dapat ditanyai peri kisah kekasihnya Majnun.

Apabila tiba Laila dihadapannya Baginda bertanya: "Wahai Laila, kau yang kechantikanmu mashhur seluruh alam; yang kasih sayangmu menjadi sumber segala puisi!—aku ingin menatap wajah Majnun, ingin tahu sifat rupa yang kau chintai dengan teguh dan jujur itu."

Maka Laila menjawab seraya menangis mengenangkan Majnun bahwa kekasihnya telah hilang tiada yang tahu kemana.

Mendengar ini Baginda menitahkan kepada pesuruh untuk menchari Majnun hingga dapat supaya dibawa dihadapannya. Pesuruh menchari dikota, dikampung, didusun hingga akhirnya diperpinggiran batasan negeri dan luasan padang pasir. Disitu beliau mendapat khabar bahwa ada seorang yang berdiam sebatang-kara dipadang pasir merayau merana senantiasa menzikirkan nama Laila bagai orang sudah gila.

Orang itu dibawa kehadapan Baginda Sultan yang, sambil terk…
